Sneak peek: Each piece is a world all its own in Nick Cave: Sojourn at the DAM

Nick Cave moves elegantly, like a dancer or maybe a panther; when he's in a room filled with his work, you can feel the reciprocal magic of a man communing with his own creations. Famous for his Soundsuits -- fanciful sound-making costumes for dancers, on a variety of themes -- Cave is not only evolving in that medium, he's also exploring new directions in three-dimensional assemblage and installation work.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
